Uganda is projected to lose its entire forest cover by 2050 unless the trend of deforestation is arrested and degraded landscapes restored. Most of the forests are destroyed for agriculture, charcoal burning, and settlement, and in addition, over 90% of the households use wood fuel for cooking.
Based on this trend, Development Alert under the Environment Conservation program works with communities to promote projects that aim to tackle deforestation in Uganda, improve the health of women and children, and empower and build the capacity of communities on environment-based practices through:
Fundraise for a conservation activity.
Sponsor or support a community conservation project.
Donate trees for a community.
Participate in community tree planting.
